The movie starts with gruesome killing of a policeman by hooded guy, who burns him alive and leaves his ashes on the stairs of the police station in a pot. He challenges all corrupt policeman that he will kill all of them brutally if they don't stop taking bribes.

The safety of Mumbai city has been assigned to a police department with roughly 200,000 officers, the majority of whom are corrupt. When four police inspectors are burnt alive in a series of merciless killings, the entire police force is terrified. The media is looking for answers. The public is on the fence over these killings, which appear to be the work of Veer, a bold, calculating, and unapologetic vigilante. Fearing the next attack, the Commissioner calls upon DCP Shivansh, their best bet to catch Veer. What follows is a confrontation of epic proportions through the corrupt underbelly of the financial capital.



The film was released on 15 August 2018 to coincide with Indian Independence Day. The film was released along with Akshay Kumar's Gold. It was released on 2500 screens in India.[11]
